Opéra de Montréal premieres “Another Brick in the Wall” tonight.
The opera, based on Pink Floyd‘s 1979 album “The Wall” with libretto by Roger Waters, opens tonight at Place Des Arts in Montreal for a 10-night run.
Clocking in at two hours, the show is sung in English with English and French subtitles provided.
A one-hour “pre-opera” precedes the show. Hosted by a musicologist, the pre-event will help explain the history, libretto, artists and symbols of the production.
Organizers tell us there’s “a very good chance” Waters will attend tonight’s opening performance.
Pre-opera begins at 6:30 ET, with curtain at 7:30. At time of this writing it appears there is exactly one ticket still available, for $193.75.
Tomorrow we’ll post a series of photos from the production.
